The 2019 Media Impact Forum

WXPN’s 17th annual NonCommvention—considered the premier gathering place for noncommercial music radio stations, industry members and music fans—is under way at World Café Live in Philadelphia. Performers this year include Blondie, Ani DiFranco, the Pixies, Benjamin Booker, and more.

If you don’t happen to be in or around Philly this week, VuHaus—a music discovery video platform for public media—is livestreaming the event for air-conditioned homes and offices everywhere: https://www.vuhaus.com/live

Funded in part by the Wyncote Foundation and operated by its founding partner, the Public Media Company, VuHaus is celebrating its 2nd anniversary (it launched at NonComm two years ago) this week. Its goal is to create exposure to and support emerging and local artists through collaborations with public radio stations in different markets around the country. Founding stations include KCRW (Los Angeles), KEXP (Seattle), KTBG The Bridge (Kansas City), KUTX (Austin), WFUV (New York City), and WXPN (Philadelphia). And today, the platform announced a new member to the fold: 88Nine Radio Milwaukee (WYMS).

 “We’re excited about this new partnership with VuHaus as it offers a new opportunity to get Milwaukee musicians on a bigger platform with a national audience,” said Jordan Lee, Programming Director at Radio Milwaukee, in a press release. “The video platform is an important focus for us as it allows our listeners to build a deeper connection with new and emerging artists.”
